Dealing with Insider Threats
An InformationWeek - Dark Reading Virtual Event
Date: July 15, 2009
Virtual Doors Open: 10:00 am EST/ 7:00 am PST
After years of building up their defenses against viruses, hackers, and other external attacks, many IT and security managers are now worrying about a new set of threats: those that come from inside the company. As the economy struggles, experts say, corporations are increasingly at risk from employees and ex-employees who know how to collect the data they need to turn a quick profit or exact some revenge against their employers. Even more commonly, a deluge of new mobile and social networking technologies have enabled employees to unintentionally expose their companies' data to compromise, unknowingly leaking data to hackers, criminals, and competitors.
Is your organization ready to handle insider threats? Do you even know what those threats might be? If you are unsure of your answers, you should attend "Dealing with Insider Threats," an InformationWeek/Dark Reading virtual event. This event offers nearly all of the same features as a live trade show, including an exhibit floor, chat areas, and a full slate of expert panel sessions and presentations, featuring some of the industry's top experts in the areas of computer forensics and internal threats. This all-day event will give you an opportunity to hear about the most recent developments in insider attacks, as well as new vulnerabilities that may affect your organization. You'll also hear about some of the industry's best practices for defending against insider threats, and you can kick the tires on some leading-edge tools that may help your organization prevent data leaks at the source.
As internal threats become a more critical consideration in your company's security defenses, can you afford not to attend this important virtual event? Come for the full day, drop in on a session, or even plan to attend the recorded sessions at a later date – but be there!
